Who knew we'd be here during the heatwave of 2015? I was told that this is normally the weather they have at the end of August. With the heat index, it's in the triple digits, and humid as hell. No, hell wouldn't be this humid.
The only times we've ventured out was by car or bicycle. There is no sitting outside, there's no doing anything except sit inside in the air conditioning. We have a new motto...Chasing 70 - degrees, that is.
But we have accomplished quite a few things this trip. I've been doing a lot of organizing and making the rig more homey. I'm going to place a curtain behind the driver's seats to keep the heat up front and to make it more homey. It also separates the driving space from the living space. T
We also talked about our electronic needs once we full-time. I know that I'll need my computer for home business and my pictures. There's not a lot of room, so we talked about taking out the dinette table and converting it to a portable desk.
About the trip: HH Motorcoach Resort is beautiful. Lots of shade trees, Spanish Moss. Every site had pavers and was beautifully landscaped. Wi-Fi was good, as was the cable tv. It was large enough that we spent lots of time riding our bikes around and Sage loved being pulled in her coach. The pool was also nice, as was the hot tub. We never had noisy neighbors - everyone was very respectful and there was enough distance between every site that you felt alone. Latecomers that arrived after 8 pm were welcome to spend the night outside the gate with electric. So, we never had that late neighbor show up, making lots of noise. All in all, the resort was a four star. Restaurants and shops were close by, and a beach was only a mile away. The dog park was outside the entrance, which was a little inconvenient, but it looked nice. The staff was very friendly - the paid staff as well as the workkampers made every effort to make you feel welcome. Hilton Head, itself, is beautiful as well.
We did go to the beach a couple of times and Sage got her tootsies wet. Wednesday night we decided to leave a day early. The drive to Hilton Head was tough. 8 1/2 hours long and Dave was really sore. So we decided to leave, find a campground halfway and stay overnight and break the drive up into two days. We found a campground in Kinards, SC, called Magnolia RV Park. It was a Passport America campground and we got a pull thru site for the grand total of $20.52. It was clean, had a pool and a small store. The owner, Gary was very nice and we were escorted to our site. It was not a resort by any means, but for an overnight, well worth the visit. And the wi-fi was a little slower, but it worked.
We got home Friday at about 3 pm and had several doggies very happy to see us! Edit: hubby realized today that he left the very expensive surge protector hooked up at our campsite at Magnolia RV Park. We called, expecting it to be gone. To our very extreme happiness, it was still hooked up to the electric and they pulled it to mail to us. That made me feel good to know there are still honest people in the world. It could have been an expensive lesson to learn.
